Mountain Lion
Rescue
A 100-lb., 2 year old male mountain lion was spotted in my neighbor's yard.  
Sheriff deputies and Animal Control were called.  We were lucky enough to
be allowed to photograph the rescue after the animal was tranquilized.   
Orange County Animal Care, Fish & Game personnel as well as veterinarians
from Serrano Animal Hospital treated the mountain lion and relocated it.
The mountain lion was tranquilized in a tree, where it remained after being darted.  
Wildlife experts used a harness to lower the cat to the ground.
Veterinarians from Serrano Animal
Hospital administered IV fluids,
prophylactic antibiotics, and  anti
parasitic medications .
The cat's paws are secured and
treatment begins.
A Gorgeous animal!
Officers transport to a waiting truck.
Final medications are given and
the mountain lion is transported.
